Britney Man-Manny Was Famed Baby-Catcher

7/13/2007 9:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So that hunky guy that's been rumored to be Britney's man-slash-manny in the past week? Turns out that he's the guy who so famously helped catch little Sean Preston when Britney almost dropped him on a Manhattan street last year.

But any speculation that Daimon Shippen -- the bodyguard -- might be putting in overtime with Brit is pooh-poohed by People, which reports that Shippen is "not dating" Spears. He was indeed at Brit's side when she nearly deposited Sean P. on the concrete -- but he wore a moustache at the time. Shippen shipped off from that security firm, but Spears hired him back.

Daimon is said by a source to be "funny, but on the quiet side," and "tickled" by the media frenzy.

Did Paris Gets Perks in Pokey?


The L.A. Sheriff's Department has launched an internal investigation into whether Paris Hilton got special treatment during her three-week stay at Lynwood, including possibly getting a cellphone for her own use while other inmates waited in line for a payphone, and being issued a new uniform whereas other inmates got recycled ones. The L.A. Times reports that two officials confirmed the special treatment, and that Paris may also have had her mail delivered by a captain rather than fellow inmates.

Eva's Swag-geringly Swank Goodie Bags


Eva Longoria raised a lot of envious eyebrows when people heard that she'd given all of her wedding guests those $700 Van Cleef & Arpels bracelets. It turns out that she didn't have to pay for them, according to a Page Six report. What's more, all the other stuff she gifted in those Bebe goodie bags, -- Vitamin Water, Cole Haan kits, L'Oreal products -- was provided gratis as well. "They didn't purchase anything for their guests," says a source. Longoria, of course, is a Bebe spokesmannequin. Reps didn't confirm or deny.

Lindsay's New Way – What Would Machiavelli Do?


Some folks adopt the Bible as a guiding text in rehab, others look to Wayne Dyer, but not Lindsay Lohan -- she's going with Machiavelli. The frecklicious starlet's new self-help tome is Machiavelli's "The Prince," which, she tells Tatler, is her constant companion. "I was going out with someone and they said I should read Machiavelli and I was like, 'nah,' and then I was, 'OK, I'll read it' and now it is always with me." And you wonder why LiLo seems to have so many frenemies?

Party Favors: Kim K – I'm Not a Ho! ... Whitney's Album Comes Along, Slowly ... David Beckham – Who the Hell is That?


Kim Kardashian just wants to set the record straight. She tells Bossip that while she's had a variety of suitors over the year, she's not cavorting with just anyone, including Tyson Beckford. "Me and Tyson know each other from my stepdad and have always been just friends." ... Whitney Houston is coming back ... one song at a time. She's got two songs in the can, reports FOX News, and is working on a third. At this rate, we will get an album around, oh, 2010. ... So, yeah, the Beckhams arrived in the US last night, blah, blah, blah, but the AP amusingly reports that 11-year-old Austin Baker had the following observation on the big hubbub at LAX: "Who's David Beckham?" Bless you, Austin, and Godspeed.

I'm sure Lindsay will cart around her new "constant companion" cover-side out until she loses it, but I doubt we'll see any dog-ears.

Eva was paid to get married, that doesn't seem so honest for some reason. Is this just the week in review? because these stories are all old news.

but that manny does seem like a sweet, funny person, especially when he wore that "dangerously cheesy" cheetos t shirt to shirt, that was cute, since every one makes fun of Britney's penchant for cheetos. and her sons are in good hands.

Brother Harold, S.J.    

I am so repulsed by the way in which that so-called actress Eva Longoria made such a spectacular show of conspicuous consumption with her wedding while there is so much poverty and suffering in the world--that whole nonsense could have probably fed the pathetic starving people of Darfur for a year--that I can only hope the marriage falls apart (which it probably will anyway) and her career winds up having been just an extended fifteen minutes.

These celebrities who make such a public show of pissing away their money just to get attention are disgusting beyond comprehension. And that, of course, goes for the Paris Hiltons and Lindsay Lohans and Britney Spearses of this world.

I wish them all a short life, and eagerly anticipate reading their obituaries one of these days (the sooner the better). What contemptible trash they are--as well as he demented parents who spawned and raised them.

A pox on the whole damn bunch of you!.
